The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me;
Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and your right hand delivers me. The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O LORD, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands. – Psalm 138:7-8
Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen. – Jude 1:24-25
“But indeed for this purpose I have raised you up, that I may show My power in you, and that My name may be declared in all the earth. – Exodus 9:16
Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. By this is love perfected with us, so that we may have confidence for the day of judgment, because as he is so also are we in this world. There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. We love because he first loved us. (1 John 4:16)
For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. (1 Cor 1:21)
What is the purpose of my life? To be a good person, to make a difference in this world, to be productive? How many people want an answer to these questions? If we devote our lives to following Jesus these questions also have to be answered. The proof of my desire is in the things I pursue. If we take a look at what we watch, read, purchase, chase after we will soon identify our desire. “One thing have I desired of the Lord that will I seek after, that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life” (Psalm 27:4)
What is the propose of my life ? God created us so that we could have a relationship with Him. That is our primary reason for existence. If you do not have a personal relationship with God your creator how can you know the reason for your existence? In the Garden of Eden Adam and Eve walked with God ( Gen 3:8). They spoke directly with Him and had a relationship with Him (Gen 1:28). Since Jesus died on the cross and was raised again those who believe in him can have that relationship restored. If you are in love with someone you want to be with them, you desire them, you use your time and resources on them. We need before anything else a relationship with God, through Jesus Christ.
